The Wellington Chamber of Commerce will host an educational and interactive forum and luncheon Wednesday, Jan. 23 at the Wanderers Club, featuring Crime Stoppers of Palm Beach County President John Shwiner.
Shwiner is an award-winning advocate for assisting law enforcement through programs focused on generating thousands of leads, resulting in arrests and lower crime rates.
Through a combination of his outstanding business career, academic credentials, military service and nearly 20 years of nonprofit activism, Shwiner has implemented a community-wide philosophy to make the public and schools safer through the alert participation of citizens and students.
Shwiner has been credited for the creation and production of the organization’s web page, the “Creep of the Week” radio program, the TIPS in Lockers program, an organizational fundraising golf tournament and the additional award of “$500 for recovery of a firearm,” suggested by School Police Chief Jim Kelly after the shooting death of teacher Barry Grunow in 2000.
This luncheon event will sell out, so early reservations are suggested. The cost to attend is $20 for chamber members with RSVP, and $30 for nonmembers and the general public. Registration takes place at 11:30 a.m., and the luncheon begins promptly at noon. RSVPs are required to attend. Sponsorship tables and sponsor opportunities are available.
